IT’S MORE FUN WHEN IT’S YOUR WIFE’S MONEY: Representative James Moran of Virginia used to be a stock broker, and it turns out that he did a lot of stock buying and selling — including behavior that verged on “what later came to be known as day trading” — while in Congress.

Important Information: Terry McAuliffe Backed Clinton In The 2008 Primaries!

Little-known fact: Virginia gubernatorial candidate and beloved Clinton pimp Terry McAuliffe spent the first half of 2008 dancing around Hillary Clinton like a court jester on meth, going on morning talk shows and doing shots of rum and laughing right along with his hosts about how wink wink Hillary was totally going to be president, even though not enough people voted for her in the primaries. He was the most underminey best friend in the WORLD. Read more on Important Information: Terry McAuliffe Backed Clinton In The 2008 Primaries!…

Moran Mocks McAuliffe At Fundraiser

Terry McAuliffe, the famous American statesman who helped Hillary Clinton win the presidency by bravely volunteering to do shots of rum on live television very early in the morning, deserves whatever office he decides to run for. He has offered to bestow his gubernatorial blessing on the great state of Virginia, a place he has apparently lived for many years (?!), but first he must VANQUISH several rivals in the Democratic primary.
